"Have You Ever"
"Have You Ever"

"You" was the 9th single released by UK pop group S Club 7 on 11 February 2002. The track is a very uptempo-retro number reminiscent of the group's third single "You're My Number One". The video was set in the 1950s and is described in the Best CD booklet as the "candyfloss-bright, tongue-in-cheek 50s pastiche". This track was the last single to feature departed band member Paul Cattermole and sparked the last leg of the S Club 7 journey. The song reached no. 2 on the UK Singles Chart. It also charted on the 2002 Year End Singles chart at number 70.

Music video[edit]

The first part of the video stars Rachel Stevens as a wife who cooks food for her husband portrayed by Paul Cattermole. Paul comes home and Rachel tries to feed him. But a mistress played by Jo O'Meara appears out of nowhere, distracts Paul and they start dancing. Then they enter another room through a curtain, revealing the other band members. The part ends with Hannah Spearritt dancing. The second part shows Rachel mowing the lawn. Jon Lee joins her, but soon goes to Jo, who is having a barbecue. The smoke from the grill show the other 6 members dancing under umbrellas. Rachel looks while using a hose. It turns off, then it sprays Rachel in the face. The third part takes place in the garage. Bradley McIntosh is repairing the car. Rachel looks at him, Bradley does likewise. Then Jo appears in the car dancing with Bradley. The others come in. Rachel is sad until the others sing to her. They all sing together and they drive off.

The music video for 'You' was filmed after "Don't Stop Movin'" and was intended as the follow up single before the group were asked to record the Children In Need single ('Have You Ever') for that year.
